Is there a time frame to build on the property?

No. You can hold on to the property for as long as you like. If it’s a buildable lot, you’ll need to get a building permit before initiating any kind of construction, but other than that there’s no time limit on building.

Can I raise animals or crops on the property?

Unless otherwise specified in your purchase agreement and as long as you are not inside the town or city limits, as far as we know you can raise animals or grow crops on the property. Nevertheless, a verification with the county planning department is always a good idea before you make your purchase.

Are mineral rights included in the sale?

Not usually. Mineral rights have been stripped long before we bought our properties.

Does the property have utilities?

Most of our rural properties have no electricity, septic or water. You’d need to either to use solar power, dig a septic (permit required) and dig a well (permit required).

Properties inside the city or town limits generally DO have utilities.

Do you provide recent surveys of your land for sale?

We buy our properties either in bulk or individually from private owners who don’t want them any more. We then turn around and offer these properties to you at a very affordable price, usually much below comparable properties in the area. In order to do that we try to keep our costs as low as possible, and this is the reason we don’t conduct surveys.

That being said, you can always conduct your own survey if you like.

How do I plan a site visit?

Most of our properties are not fenced off. You can visit the properties whenever you like. There’s no need to call ahead or schedule a visit.
